We will enjoy welcoming you in-person once your vaccinations are complete!
This is a BBC travel documentary series presented by Michael Portillo, a British journalist, broadcaster and former politician. Using an 1899 copy of Appleton’s Guidebook to the railways of the United States and Canada, Portillo explores historic Canadian railways and learns about the places along the way. There are 15 videos in this series, and we will watch two of the episodes. We’ll enjoy beautiful scenery, learn some fascinating local history, and meet some colorful locals.
Halifax – Michael begins a new journey on the tracks of the ocean line to explore Canada’s maritime provinces, en route to Quebec City. Clutching his 1899 Appleton’s Guide to Canada, Michael begins in the Atlantic port of Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he discovers an 18th-century British hilltop citadel, manned at the time of his guide by the 78th Highland Regiment.
Kamloops to Banff – Michael boards one of the world’s most famous trains, the Rocky Mountaineer, to cross the backbone of the North American continent from Kamloops to the spa resort of Banff. This magnificent journey takes him to the highest point of the 19th-century transcontinental Canadian Pacific Railway line at Kicking Horse Pass, past Lake Louise and inside spiral tunnels blasted through the mountains.
